Forums - Gaming Discussion - IGN Game of the Year announced!

This doesn't surprise me at all, God of War is my game of the year and I'm glad to see it doing so well, Sony Santa Monica really made something special.

Naughty Dog and Santa Monica are Sony's Golden Gods they really should consider buying insomniac so they can say they own 4 of the top 10 developers of the world,sucker punch is amazing but until ghosts of tsushima isn't released to high praise like guerilla games horizon dawn they are still top 20 at best.

God of War is so good its like eating that 100 dollar cheesecake you only see at weddings or rich parties lol

Sucker punch and guerrilla games will have words with you.

I commend SP for pulling off Infamous SS as a launch title and I know GoT will be their magnum opus. And GG for well, being GG and also joining the ranks of having made at least one 10M selling game with Horizon.

Dont get me wrong, GG is now a top 10 dev worldwide after horizon but before that they were not while ND and SM  were last gen and the one before. Meanwhile SP is great but infamous and sly cooper are not elite powerhouse console movers like what many expect ghosts of tsushima will be, and insomniac has been a mix of elite and good for a long time but with this spider man game they put their foot in the top 10 dev competition which is why Sony should make an investment to buy them once and for all

Poor Smash. This was like the worst year to release in.

Anyways amazing award! I really need to finish more games from this year ... this and Shadow of the Colossus are going to be some of my next games to go through.

Pretty sure you already know this but Smash counts for next year awards.

Not that it matters, not many even consider fighting games when talking about GOTY, same as racing/sports titles. They’re basically the comedy genre of the gaming world.

Cant wait for the GOTY edition next year :)

That makes no sense. God of War has no dlcs.

It's complete, since day 1 ;)



Death Stranding-Release: November 8!

No, it will likely get screwed out of getting anything.  Xenoblade 2 could have easily been nominated for several awards this year, but it didn't happen.  I feel like of a game releases in December, it automatically disqualifies itself bu default which is a shame.

Homeboy says at 1:29: "I've never really liked Kratos as a character." Fair enough....But really, what games was he playing? I've always found him, at the very least, interesting, and at best, totally engaging, and a character who I really wanted to guide to his narrative conclusion. Possibly the greatest anti-hero in gaming history. Passionate in achieving his goals, capable of callous, almost mechanical death-dealing, but plagued by suffering and regret. Plus he banged whoors until ornaments fell off the walls.

The only one I played was the first, and Kratos was such an asshole that I found no reason to root for him.  He was very much an early 2000s character... and it's just not my kind of thing.



Another good win for God of War, congrats to SSM and the team. Hope I get around to playing it soon, once I get a PS4.

Personally I found RDR2 to be overrated (that 97 metacritic is way too high, and IMO Rockstar isnt the king of open world games anymore), so I'm happy another game is running away with it.

Though fuck Polygon. Not giving those dipshits a single click.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I mean, hey, fair enough, and really, the same applies to homeboy. I think I probably reacted that way because of posts I've seen here on VGC over the years, where people go off on what a one note character he is, which I really don't think is true. While I wouldn't date the character of Kratos as evocative of the "early 2000's", again, fair enough. I didn't start the series until May 2010, when I began playing the PS3 remaster of GOW, continuing with 2 and 3, and never had the the original give me a vibe that hearkened back to a particular style that was prevalent at the time it was made. He certainly IS often an asshole though. It's not difficult to imagine a person not liking him for his actions. His more unsavory characteristics only get worse after GOW 1, and I can't deny they didn't bother me a little bit at times.....RIP Gear Girl.
